Look up!

We freshen up downtown by changing banners a couple times a year and planting and hanging flower pots each spring.

Here to help!

We help local entrepreneurs with a variety of tasks, from working with City officials to adjust codes and ordinances to assisting businesses start-up or grow. 

What's Next?

Since MSO was created, over $20M has been invested in downtown buildings; but we're not done yet!
